The Real Bummer

26? That can’t be right. Oh, okay. 35. That’s much better?

The real bummer isn’t that I my blood glucose dropped to 26 mg/dL.

The real bummer isn’t that the immediate follow up test was 35. Prompting the dilemma of uncertainty regarding which number I should use to calibrate my Dexcom.

The real bummer isn’t that this uncertainty exists for every test, because I can never fully trust what any of my meters tell me.

The real bummer is that despite a low alarm and the general, and particularly vague, sense that my blood glucose was falling, I didn’t feel anything that resembled a number this low.

I suppose this justifies my wearing a CGM, right?
